Treasury game – Murder mystery: the suspect

I’ve just joined a team on Etsy that organises a mystery. That’s right and that’s the reason why I joined them. They have a very unique way to create treasuries, giving them such a form that will actually tell some kind of story. They call themselves The Museum of Made and Found and generally act as if every treasury were a find to showcase in the museum. Kind of a RPG if you will.

When I discovered them a couple of weeks ago they had just started a mystery. There will be five parts to the game and the goal is to create treasuries that will speak about the different elements of the mystery. The first part was the introduction of your suspect.

Well, you see I couldn’t resist. And of course you’ll see my suspect has a distinctive dieselpunk falvour to her.

So, here she is, Miss Ombretta Vivaldi.

Ombretta Vivaldi was born deep on the Dolomites.
She’s an archeologist, specialized in human remains and ritual artefacts. She’s always thought there is a lot more inside what we hold in our hands after digging it out of the earth than we actually see.

  1. Head over to the Etsy thread of the mystery and see what the other members are up to
  2. Have a look to the other treasuries in the ‘suspect’ stream

  1. This is a fabulous idea – and I had no idea such a thing existed. As a photographer, I can always appreciate gorgeous images, and as a writer, there’s tons of visual stimulation and inspirations. As just plain old me, there’s plenty to go on my wish list of must-haves 🙂

  2. Hi Piper, thanks for stopping by 🙂

    I enjoyed the Murder Mystery Game a lot. It was inspiring, even as a writer. Now I want to write something about Ombretta.

    The game is over now (you can see all the installments on my author’s blog theoldshelter.com) but I hope the team will do something similar in the future.
